Boxart gallery runs a yearly free of charge art competition. The theme for Nov 2012 was how space affects creativity, which I found difficult to interpret. The child is my daughter and my feeling was to show that in order for my creativity to flow, I keep an open mind and open eyes, much like a child. I also chose that she walks on a beach to indicate that doing something basic like walking, helps to bring the mind in order.
